The Bengals will re-sign former offensive tackle Dennis Roland on Tuesday, most likely taking Andrew Hawkins' spot when he transfers to IR.

And just when you thought that Dennis Roland was gone, he's back. According to Pro Football Talk, the Cincinnati Bengals will re-sign Dennis Roland. Make any assumption that you want, but this has to be directly related to the injury status of Andrew Whitworth, who is rehabilitating his surgically repaired knee.

Yes, Anthony Collins would most likely start if Whitworth can't go against the Chicago Bears. But what happens if Collins or Andre Smith, who missed the preseason finale against the Colts, go down?

Currently the Bengals have a full compliment on their 53-man roster, so someone will need to go for the Bengals to make room. Most likely the Bengals will move Andrew Hawkins to the Injured Reserve with a designation to return, opening the spot on the roster for Roland.
